Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Clinical Issue: Perioperative teams function in a complex and dynamic environment characterized by rapidly evolving and ambiguous situations, multiple information sources, severe time pressure, and severe consequences when errors occur. Effective communication is necessary to meet the demands of the perioperative work environment. Nurses leave environments when they feel they cannot meet the demands imposed upon them. Description of Team: The participants included cardiothoracic (CT) surgeons, CT and anesthesia residents, anesthesia faculty, operating room (OR) RNs and surgical technicians, and perfusionists. Preparation and Planning The purpose was to improve team communication, team functioning, and reduce nursing CT team turnover. Multidisciplinary human factor team training was conducted in perioperative services using Crew Resource Management (CRM) methodology. Assessment: Over a two year time period, the CT nursing team had an 80% turnover rate. The RN team leader turned over annually over the two year time period. The surgeons were frustrated with lack of nursing staff knowledge of CT procedures and nursing staff was demoralized. Implementation: In August 2006, human factor training using CRM methodology was conducted for the cardiothoracic team in perioperative services, as a pilot program. The team received additional training in 2008 to further improve communication. Outcome: Improved team functioning with implementation of preoperative briefings and postoperative debriefings. Reduced OR nursing team turnover. First year retention was 100%. Improved tenure of nursing staff on the CT team. Implications for Perioperative Nursing: A nursing workforce that is satisfied and highly committed to the organization will have a positive effect on patient satisfaction and patient safety, as well as improve the efficiency and profitability of the organization.
